Hi All

I a an I.T. major who will be graduating in a few short months. I use Ubuntu at home and in my last 3 IT Coops have used a large amount of FOSS to get my jobs done. However at this point I'm wondering if there is any place with a job for me that doesn't have MS office, Adobe software, or dreamweaver as a req. so long story short , which companies work environments are most FOSS friendly?

I am in the Northern Virginia area near DC so lots of Contractors here, but no clue as far as IT+Open Source initiatives](*,) .

Why not work for one of the FOSS coops you had?

Nokia, but that requires moving to Europe and adapting to the cold weather >_>

I'd suggest Redmond.

Apply for a job at Red Hat. I would have suggested Novell (let's face it - SUSE dominates us), but... yeah. Let's not go there.

Didn't you hear? Novell aren't an open source company any more, now they're "mixed-source" :p
